OAKLAND, Calif. --Two people died, including one child, in a collision this morning on Interstate Highway 880 in Oakland, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The collision occurred shortly after 5 a.m. in the northbound lanes of Highway 880 just south of Fifth Avenue.
According to the CHP, a white box truck was disabled on the right shoulder with its hazard lights on. A black BMW was speeding north when it veered off the roadway and hit the truck. Immediately after the collision, the BMW re-entered the roadway and was struck by a Ford F-250.
A child and a man who were sitting in the back seat of the BMW died in the collision. It appeared that the child was not properly restrained inside the vehicle, CHP officials said. The driver of the BMW, another child and a woman passenger of the BMW were all transported to local hospitals, according to the CHP.
CHP investigators do not believe that drugs or alcohol were factors in the collision, according to the CHP.
A Sig-alert was issued at 5:36 a.m. because all northbound Highway 880 lanes were blocked. Two lanes remained blocked as of 6:20 a.m., CHP officials said.
